Dubbo 18 Jan 2018: Feeder steers to 316c/kg

Guest Author, 19 January 2018

The bulk of the yarding at Dubbo yesterday were sourced from local districts with very few far western cattle throughout the yarding which is probably due to the very hot conditions which would make it almost impossible to muster. Most of the regular buyers were operating with the exception of some feeder orders and one major export processor has not yet commenced for the year.
